I am also a relatively new archer and use fiberglass recurve bows. I don't hunt, so all that I need is one.I’m a relatively new archer, and use a fiberglass recurve bow exclusively for hunting and the joy of shooting. Ive been wondering: how many bows does an archer actually need? Obviously a purist answer could be one. However, I think we all find it practical to have more than one, for various reasons. I’m sure some of you have many many bows, and some only one. But practically speaking, what do you find is a reasonable number of bows to cover the hunters basic needs?
Ha! I've been saying the same thing for years.The number you need is just one more.
Despite my earlier flippant answer all you really need is a 25" riser and a couple sets of limbs, everything else is just window dressing.
